Planning Proposal (Rezoning) Application - Cnr Hawke, Bowen & Currambene Streets, Huskisson

Council has received a proponent-initiated Planning Proposal request to rezone Lots 7 & 8 in DP 758530 at the corner of Hawke, Bowen & Currambene Streets, Huskisson from SP2 – Place of Public Worship to B4 – Mixed Use Business under the Shoalhaven LEP 2014. The purpose of the rezoning would be to enable a mixed use development comprising a residential apartment building, tourist and visitor accommodation (hotel and serviced apartments), and retail premises (including food and beverage). The proposal also seeks to increase the ‘maximum height of buildings’ control in the LEP from 10 m to 13 m and the ‘incentive building height’ from 13 m to 16 m.
